Badminton School Hall, Bristol, BS9 3BA

Speakers: Dr Somak Raychaudhury

Dr Somak Raychaudhury (University of Birmingham) will discuss the tools that modern cosmographers use and present what we know of the locality we live in. From the 16th century, explorers started travelling around the Earth making maps and figuring out the shapes of land masses and oceans. On the scale of the Universe, only now do we have large telescopes that allow us to make maps of the surroundings of our galaxy and reveal our local neighbourhood in the Universe.
18.30 start, tea and coffee from 18.15.
This talk will be suitable for all, including children aged 10 and above. Attendance free, non-members welcome.
